Angela Magaña signs with Combate Americas

Female mixed martial artist and former UFC veteran Angela Magaña now has a new home en route to her return to the cage.

Fighting To Eat is reporting that the former Ultimate Fighter veteran has now signed with Combate Amercas. Combate Americas is a mma promotion that primarily features Hispanic fighters from both Central and South American countries. Sources have cited that Magaña has signed a three-fight deal with the promotion. Magana initially teased the signing earlier in February.

Magaña (11-10) most recently competed at Rizin 12 last year in August in a losing effort against Kanako Murata. Prior to this loss, Magaña competed for the UFC three times following a stint on season 20 of the Ultimate Fighter. She competed for Team Melendez and lost in the first round against the now-retired Aisling Daly.

Magaña has garnered much notoriety as of late with her bombastic social media presence since competing on TUF and has recently announced plans to compete in the 2020 Olympics for the Puerto Rico wrestling team. Magaña moved to Puerto Rico in late 2015 and has since garnered citizenship for the country, allowing for her potential participation in the historic games. She will look to compete at 53 kg (116 pounds) and will compete in the Olympic qualifiers in the next few months.

As of press time, no opponent or debut date has been set for Magaña.
